Mum seems to get these calls every now and again. Luckily she says to them that my brother and I are IT techs and she'll get us to fix it. Don't think my Gran has had any of these calls, but I'd hope she'd do the same thing as Mum as we look after her laptop too.

I recently discovered my parents machine full of malware so created an 'admin' profile and an 'Office' profile that cannot install anything and has no permissions to change settings. It's working out well. I still can't believe the abuse I got when I called out one of these 'scammers'. It was terrifying. If you've never experienced this you're lucky, but sometimes snarking back or calling them out on the lie results in more hassle.

They are ramping up here, had two in one night. I now just leave them in no uncertain terms that I am not interested and suggest they go get ravaged by crazed wild goats at their earliest convenience. I have yet to find one that is more creative than me with words.

They did get upset when I called them Oxygen thieves. Never said a rude word but they did use some juicy language. I then informed them that they would not be going to paradisewith that sort of language. That really upset them They hung up!

Yes, they called me on Sunday and I let him explain to me everything in details. After all, I said, I did not switch on my laptop, and asked him where is the Shut up button and then thankfully, he got fed up and hang up without saying goodbye. LOL
